    All my drivers are there but cant open iso folder to copy and past content.
    You are using so completely wrong commands that it would be a miracle if you wouldn't be stuck.

    Your screenshots show that when checking the image indexes, you tell DISM the image is in D:\ISO_Files\Sources folder, when it is actually in C:\Users\Hoolm\Documents\My ISO Files folder.

    Next, you are trying another path, so completely wrong that DISM cannot understand it:

    dism /Get-WinInfo /WimFile:C:\Users\hoolm\Documents\My ISO files:\ISO_Files\Sources\install.wim

    What you should have used:

    dism /Get-WinInfo /WimFile:"C:\Users\hoolm\Documents\My ISO files\Sources\install.wim"

    Notice that as always when path contains spaces, it must be in quotes. You image path contains folder name My ISO Files, with two spaces, therefore the full path must be in quotes.

    Read the tutorial once more, use correct commands.

    It depends upon what you want to do.

    Before I go on, if you have further questions regarding this, please PM me. I don't want to hijack this thread on the tutorial with huge discussions on my program .

    Here is a summary of what each of those options do:

    #5: This will extract Windows editions from multiple different ISO images, then combine them all into a single ISO image. As an example, you could take Windows 10 Pro both x86 and x64 as well as Windows 10 Home x86 and x64 from a Windows 10 Retail ISO image, as well as a sysprep customized Windows 10 Pro x64 and combine them all into a single ISO image.

    The bottom line is that #5 doesn't modify any Windows editions, it just gathers a bunch of different editions and combines them all into one ISO image.

    #6 is useful if you have extracted the contents of a Windows ISO image to the hard drive and then made modifications. As an example, say that you have coped the contents of a Windows 10 retail ISO image to a folder on your HD. You then manually added drivers or updates and committed those changes. So now you have the modified files sitting on the HD. This option will take those files and create an ISO image out of them.

    #8 does nothing more than export all the drivers from a system to a folder of your choosing.

    NOTE: Read the help file for this program. Note that I suggest running a utility called Driver Store Explorer first. It can significantly reduce the size and number of drivers needed.

    Complete Guide
    ==============
    I am assuming that your goal is to take a Windows image and update it with drivers from one or more systems. Here is how to do this:

    1) Run option #8 on the system where you want to save the drivers from.

    2) Run option #14. This will show all the editions of Windows contained in your ISO image. Let's assume that you want to add the drivers to Windows 10 Pro x64. You run option #14 and it tells you that Windows 10 Pro has index number 6.

    3) Run option #3. It will ask for the location of ISO images to update. Point it to the folder where your ISO image(s) are located. It will ask you where the drivers are located. For each ISO image in the folder you specified, it will ask if you want to update any editions of Windows within that ISO. For each ISO image you choose to update it will ask you for the index number of the Windows edition you want to update. So in this example, in step 2 we had determined that Windows 10 Pro is index 6 so we would tell it to update index 6. You will also be asked for a destination location.

    NOTE: Option #3 can add drivers to multiple different ISO images, but only to one edition on each ISO image. You would have to run it multiple times to update multiple editions within the same ISO image. I plan to add the ability to update multiple editions in an ISO image in one go eventually.

    NOTE2: The original ISO image is never modified. A new ISO image is created in the destination that you specify. Think of this kind of like modifing a picture where the image editing software creates a copy of your original photo with the changes but leaves the original photo alone.

    When done, your new ISO image(s) will have all the same editions of Windows that your original ISO images had, but only the edition with the index you specified will have the drivers added to it. In this example, Windows 10 Pro will have the drivers added to it, but not any other Windows editions within that ISO image.

    Hope this helps!

    Remember, for further discussion, let's take this to private messages.

    Let's be clear about where you are in this process:

    The ISO image that you are pointing to, have you already added your drivers to it?

    If so, there are several ways that you can create a bootable thumb drive from this. Here are several tutorials on the topic. The first one is my personal favorite:

    Create bootable USB installer if install.wim is greater than 4GB
    Create Bootable USB Flash Drive to Install Windows 10
    PowerShell Scripting - Create USB Install Media for Windows 10

    Note: If you are using my program, it uses the method in that first article. You can PM if you want help on using it, but I encourage you to learn how to do it on your own using the tutorials if you want become familiar with the process.

    Two things you can do:

    1) Provide a link to the ISO image and I tell you if it is bootable.
    2) Connect the image to a Hyper-V or VMware Virtual Machine and see if you can boot the VM from the image.

    Please do not take this wrong, I do not mean it personally!

    This tutorial is one of the simplest here on Ten Forums. All you issues are because you are not able to follow the simple, step by step instructions.

    Do everything as told in tutorial, follow the steps as told.

    Let me just check I got this correctly:

    Youy are posting in a specific tutorial thread, telling that the method told in tutorial does not work for you. Yet, you also admit that you have not read a single word of the tutorial?

    Nice, and clever! Why should you read clear and precise instructions, when you can just try something else and then ask why is it not working?

    First time ever, I am unsubscribing my own thread, just to avoid seeing your additional posts. Future readers of this tutorial, please send me a PM when you have posted about an issue in this thread, to let me know about your posts. I will no longer receive automatical notifications about new posts in this thread.

    Hoolm, I had made the assumption that you were following the tutorial and encountering difficulties since you posted your question on the thread for the tutorial.

    I STRONGLY suggest following the tutorial. Kari's tutorials are always exceptionally easy to follow and very carefully thought out.

    Trust me - follow the tutorial precisely and it will work!
